GASP!: Never Ending Sea Rise Malarkey

Before you read this post, please go here and read about the Archimedes Principle. Let me quote his work, On Floating Bodies:

Any body wholly or partially immersed in a fluid experiences an upthrust equal to, but opposite in sense to, the weight of the fluid displaced.

This is what ship builders know as displacement related to buoyancy (i.e., a ship will displace a volume of water equal to the mass of the ship). Now, after reading that, do you understand how a chunk of ice floating (or partially immersed) in water CANNOT raise sea levels, even if every last bit of the ice were to melt or even if smaller chunks of a large floating ice mass break off and then later melt? If ice is already displacing water, it cannot and will not raise water levels if it melts. You can do this experiment in your home with a dish, some water, and some ice.

Actually, if increasing heat were causing all that ice to melt, the increasing heat would also be causing increased evaporation, and I hypothesize that sea levels WOULD ACTUALLY GO DOWN…NOT UP!

Therefore, if you still believe the thrust of this fear-provoking article below (or any of the thousands written on melting ice caused by global warming that have been written over the past several years with the intention of scaring you to death), you are a complete, utter moron.

If you’re still a moron, happy about it, and like to be afraid of life, please go to the warmlist and the GASP! Series to acquire more fear related to global warming; there’s just no end to the plagues global warming piles upon mankind, LOL!

Scientists Warn of Catastrophic Sea Level Rise

COPENHAGEN — Top climate scientists warned Tuesday that sea levels could rise twice as much as previously projected as they presented the latest research on global warming.

A 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change predicted a sea level rise of 7 to 23 inches by the end of the century.

But scientists meeting in Copenhagen dismissed those estimates as too conservative, saying new data suggests that sea level rise could exceed 39 inches and is unlikely to be less than 20 inches.

"This means that if the emissions of greenhouse gases is not reduced quickly and substantially even the best-case scenario will hit low-lying coastal areas housing one-tenth of humans on the planet hard," organizers said in a statement at the three-day congress hosted by the University of Copenhagen.

The melting of polar ice sheets and of glaciers are two big factors that will affect sea levels, they added.

FYI, I've replaceed my Blogger (blogspot) domain, and purchased my own domain for GORE LIED. It's...

I thought I'd contact you so that you could update your blogroll. I still call it simply, GORE LIED, rather than Al Gore Lied. I've added you back on my blog roll with the change of domain. Thanks for the support, and I appreciate the incoming traffic.
WE ARE WINNING!

Klockarman,

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know. I've updated your link, and I agree...we are slowly but certainly winning this battle of misinformation that the media and certain political elements are waging against non-thinkers out there.
